Re: Ask A Pro about Living in Seoul, South Korea

Are there any tours available from Incheon of the DMZ and Joint Security Area?

I don't think so.

Afaik the best tours are with these guys who are partnered with the USO and they leave from the base in downtown Seoul early in the morning.

I think there are a few other companies that do tours but my understanding is they don't have the same access and aren't as good.

It's a pretty cool tour and well worth doing.

Looks like they stopped doing the DMZ tours, now it's only the palaces and temples. When I first came here they had one service to the DMZ.

Re: Ask A Pro about Living in Seoul, South Korea

Anybody playing in PSF Korea interested in going on a DMZ/JSA & 3rd Tunnel Tour? As it will be my first visit to Korea, I am trying to figure out how to go from the Paradise City Casino / Incheon airport area to Camp Kim by 7 am. Thanks, dogarse.

I would just get a taxi and chalk it up to trip expenses. Probably cost you $70. Maybe less. Alternatively go to Seoul the night before and get a hotel room.

I'd recommend this hotel. It's right in the middle of the foreign/nightlife/restaurant district and about a 3 minute taxi ride to camp Kim.

I wonder if the Kevin Song who's currently 43rd out of 183 remaining in the Main Event is the same guy who used to own the W.H. room?

Koreans seriously representing in the main... Two Korean nationals deep plus Korean Americans Kevin Song and Jay Hwan (who is Yoghiopro?) here in 2p2, has had some great PGC threads and also posted in this thread a few times.

Brutal last levels for Lee, now he's out - QQ vs KK.

Yeah, I saw that...really happened quick. I think he was in the top 5 shortly before he busted out too.

Re: Ask A Pro about Living in Seoul, South Korea

I'm kind of wondering how the Busan game is developing? Anyone have some feedback on that? Is it going 24/7 yet? What's the game like? Did they start any tournaments or anything else?
